Style doesn’t beget Quality !!!
A compact camera with adorable looks and amazing affordability is what you get from a new entrant of the Xacti style of digital camcorders of the Sanyo brand. This digital camcorder is unbelievably light, cute to look at and doesn’t weigh much on your wallet as well. Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG9 gives you a pistol-grip that allows you to hold the camcorder even with a single hand. Nevertheless, holding with both the hands gives you a better grip and helps you to focus your camcorder more accurately on the target; especially, while taking still images. Function-specific buttons have been grouped into one cluster on a single side of the camcorder making them more accessible; even with the press of a thumb you can start operating your controls effortlessly.
Some of the eye-catching features Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG9 is endowed with are: 5x optical zoom, 40 MB Internal memory, 9.12 megapixels, SD/SDHC cards, high quality TV mode, Blog mode, image stabilization, pressure-sensitive trigger button and a well-defined menu etc.
Though the camcorder boasts of image stabilization feature; there are certain drawbacks like hand-shakes and jolts that result in blurred images and nullify the effect of that particular feature. The camcorder’s pressure-sensitive button is quite tricky to use. Most of the time it is difficult to keep track of the pressure you are applying to this button and even a slightest alteration in the amount of pressure applied by you will make you shift into a different mode than what you have been really looking for. It will take you few snaps to get adjusted to the trigger button and to be able to deliver the right pressure on it. Well, do not expect anything exceptional from this extremely-stylish digital camcorder and go for it only if you are ready to put up with its poor quality pictures and messy controls.
